Your USANA Guide to Child and Teen Health

From toddlers to teens, nutrition and positive habits are essential to growing up healthy. The right nutrition can help support every aspect of development. And it will support the everyday wellness and energy levels kids need for learning and play. Read on to discover which USANA products can help support a healthy, happy life for children of all ages. And grow your knowledge on establishing habits that will influence their health for life.*

Eating healthy, whole foods is the best way for your child to grow up healthy. But just like most adults, children don’t always eat the way they should. Fortunately, USANA makes kid’s nutrition so simple, it’s child’s play. The following products are generally recommended for most healthy children or teens to help support growing brains and bodies.*

Start with Everyday Foundational Nutrition

Usanimals™


Healthy growth and development require a foundation of excellent nutrition. This wild-berry-flavored chewable provides advanced levels of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients for kids ages 2 to 12. The broad range of nutrients helps support immunity, brain development, strong bones and teeth, energy, and more. And the fun animal stamps on each tablet will help your child will look forward to taking their vitamins.*


Body Rox™


The rapid development of the teen years takes more nutrients than a multivitamin for kids. This supplement is designed specifically with teens in mind. It provides nutrients and antioxidants that may be missing from your teen’s diet and are essential for an active lifestyle that includes sports, school, and time with friends. *


Add Daily Optimizers for Your Unique Needs

BiOmega Jr.™


Omega-3 fatty acids are important for developing healthy brains and bodies. However, it’s estimated that up to 80 percent of kids don’t get enough in their diet. One of the most beneficial food sources is fish. But a lot of kids aren’t too fond of a fish dinner. This orange-pineapple-flavored gel delivers many of the same benefits of fish—without the fishy taste—plus a healthy dose of vitamin D. (BiOmega Jr. is labeled for kids ages 4 to 12, but it’s also a great option for teens and adults.)*


Choose Skincare and Personal Care Products

Whitening Toothpaste and Oral Probiotic


Developing healthy habits that support oral health begins in childhood. Protect the health of your child or teen’s teeth with regular dental checkups and by using USANA’s fluoride-free toothpaste, suitable for kids ages 3 and older. To help them maintain a healthy mouth, kids older than 6 can use the Oral Probiotic lozenge to replenish beneficial bacteria after brushing at night.*
